Moon glow

The moon courted the night sky not to hide her
For the candle's burning low.
Lovers' face all aglow.

The oversized plastic coffee cup says

The oversized

Plastic coffee cup 

with the plastic lid



I am hot and wet

Handle me with care

Do not microwave


Short Good Night poem by Hendri Schreuder | Details | |

now that it's time to say goodnight

now that it's time to say goodnight
and time to pause the days fight
remember to close your eyes tight
and think of the stories your dreams will write.

Sleepless Night

Sleepless Night

Bedtime rituals
To have a good night’s sound sleep
Turn off light, no tea
Goes early into the bed
Busted by a roommate’s noise

The Seas of My Dreams - Lullaby

Dear Featherbed,
wrap me up warm and tight 

Dear Kitty,
keep humming your note just right

Dear Moon,
you keep shining your golden light

and we'll all ride the seas of my dreams tonight

Halloween night 
All is right
Love trick or treaters
Listen to the wind howl
October 31st
Walking through enchanted trees
Every child smiling
Eve of the Jack o lanterns
Naughty or nice

Witch on the Horizon

Cut out of black paper
Thrown before a sky

Of night milk
Janitress of a
Lower house

One toothed,
Point hatted,
Flying in front of a 

Victorian curtain
Two thirds storm,
One third dark.

Orphaned Leaves - Wind Contest

gentle Wind, as evening gathers,
gathers up the orphaned Leaves,

leaves some tucked in between the Rocks...

rocks some to sleep beneath the Trees...

Short Good Night poem by nikhileswari swaminathan| Details | |


in the cool air of the spring time late evening
the night sky was ink black
as the lights went off , 
the  university ground was in great commotion,
shimmering sparkles of phosphorous,
we thought the forest was on fire

Short Good Night poem by Sujish Mohanan| Details | |

The Last Kiss Goodnight

Fire rising upto the heights
Embers glowing bright
Reaching higher and higher

Wind blown, wind swept
Bringing warmth
To onlooking eyes

Radiant glow, days demise
As the sun greets the horizon
As if the last kiss goodnight.

Saturday Night

Saturday Night. 
Toothpick body strippers tip toe the 3am stroll
Glitter, nines, lipstick, grime 
Time catches the last hours of the night
Heads lay in the treasures of dreams and slumber
A troubled world in sweet tranquility

Angels From Up High

Angels from on high
So very close by
Protecting us 
Wherever we may be
Guide us down the path 
Just you and me
As we lay down at night 
Covered up so tight
Wonderful dreams 
For you and me, too
So we can get up 
Feeling so anew

Copyright © Country Girl47

Short Good Night poem by Scott Jordan| Details | |

At night

When sleep evasively denies
and slumber slips from tired eyes
I think upon your fair facade
and quietly I thank my God
For blessings of thy tender lips
which oft I think upon and drift,
Down into dreams so softly kissed 
By you my love

Bedtime At Grandma's

Small one
Playing is done
And your bedtime has come.
Wind is moaning
rafters shifting.
Inside closets 
ghosts are sniffing.
Dare not move. Dream you fly.
Sun in your eye

Butterfly Cinquain

Short Good Night poem by Arthur Tomaszewicz| Details | |

Slowly go out of the city lights

Slowly go out of the city lights.
Only the bright neon lights blinding,
Merging into a thin, thin thread.
Into the night skyscrapers,
The noise of the city was quiet.
And outside the metropolis draws
Bright scattering on a dark background.
